The Spektrum radios come with a small 4.8 nicad that you can plug straight into your battery port on your RX.

you don't have a heli listed in you profile, so i have to ask, what heli and what's your setup? all depends on your servos, and your complete setup. fill everyone in and you'll get lots of help.

You most likely need a simple 4-cell nicad or Nimh battery pack. A local hobby shop (if available) would have one.

If not, you could go buy 4 nicad or nimh cells and a servo extension and build your own if you are competent with a soldering iron.

He wants a 4.8v 4 cell NiMH or NiCD battery to setup his receiver so he can set up an Electric helicopter without using the internal BEC on his ESC.

It's not hard to figure out, people.

What helicopter he wants it for is totally irrelevant.

To answer the OP's very lazy question, RR classifieds or a Local or online hobby shop that specializes in RC and RC accessories.

I prefer to use a bec and one of my flight packs. Works great and simple to keep around. Plus I don't have to charge another odd battery. Here is the one I use.

Any 4.8v NiCad or NiMH battery. 500mah is plenty capacity to work with. I have an old pack I wouldn't trust in flight, but holds a charge long enough to power the airborne electronics for bench work.

I have some old rx packs that aren't worth a damn any more. They aren't good for flying, but you could charge them and use them to set up your servos. I just want a couple of dollars to cover the shipping. Let me know, if you want one and I'll look for one.

Man, I miss the eighties.

he doesn't very well want to put a 4500 mah nimh on a 450 and not be able to lift the heli off the ground though does he. you knock me for asking what heli then you call his question lazy. i was just asking for more info. and was trying to be tactful as well. it always helps to have more info. especially when it comes to batteries.

whats wrong with using throttle hold and setting up with equipment you already have?

why are you trying to bypass the esc for set up?just curious,as I know its not really my business or part of the original question

you could also buy a cheap BEC and use your flight packs and not have to worry about buying or charging additional batteries

Because it's the safest way.
Then there is no power going to the ESC or motor.
One slip or mistake, you're screwed.
Bypass the ESC and motor, you run no risk of an accidental spool up.

Its easier than disconnecting the motor or pulling the pinion.
A lot of people using a 4.8v rx pack for setups. Including me.

Lately, I have been using a 2 cell lipo and it works just fine.

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

He wants to not use his ESC, because in a separate thread it is revealed that HE SMOKED IT while trying to set up his stuff. With the magic smoke out of the bag, he's stuck.

Simple 4-cell flight pack works wonders.

because my esc shot smoke and died. I'm scared it might do it again.
i fliped the switch on the ir reciever that came with my scorpion and it shut off the the eng and allowed me to still move the servos.
i don't know why i did it, but someone told me to remove at least 2 connectors from the eng to make sure it did'nt spool up. I think doing this fried my esc. I should have just used that ir reciever switch and not dick with the eng connecters. so that is why i am afrade to go through the esc, but if someone can tell me for sure that is what killed my esc i wouldnt have a problem using the esc.

if I get one of those BEC's, tell me how they work. it looks like one end obviously hooks to the rx, but not sure on the other end.
dose it hook directly to my lipo batt after i solder my connectors on it?

+1

If you don't want to buy a receiver pack, You can build you own for a couple of dollars worth of part from Radio Shack (For Bench Setup Only).

If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it's probably a helicopter.
